Melanie Lamont Counselling

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and it may seem difficult to see a way forward.

Counselling provides a confidential space where you can openly discuss your concerns. Life events such as relationship challenges, conflict at home or work, family issues or the loss of a loved one can often leave us feeling low. These life events can sometimes result in depression or anxiety, counselling offers support during these difficult times

Counselling can help you see things more clearly, help you change the way you think and feel about things and then the opportunity to change the way you

are affected by them.

        About Melanie Lamont

 My background is in healthcare and I have more than 30 years experience working both in NHS and private practice. This led me to seek a way to develop a deeper understanding of how to help people more personally.

Talking about your feelings can be incredibly beneficial in coping with the uncertainty that comes with a life-changing diagnosis like cancer. It helps you process your emotions and gain perspective, finding support when you need it most. It is an important part of the healing journey.


I also have an interest in autism spectrum disorders recognising the unique experience of individuals on the spectrum and how to provide help and support.  Developing a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by families is also crucial as they often face unique situations and difficulties in daily life. 

I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from the University of Aberdeen and completed a course for working with children and young people from the University of Strathclyde. 


I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ) and adhere to their Statement of Ethics which sets out a Code of Ethics whereby clients are seen within a defined framework and agreed boundaries.


Often certain obstacles are in our way which seem to be holding us back in life.

Issues from the past which have not been addressed may affect how you see your present. Life is too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled so having the opportunity to talk confidentially may help you find better ways to address the issues which are standing in your way.

I believe in walking alongside you as you make changes at your own pace; not pushing you forward or pulling you along. When you share your problems with someone who cares, you can feel calmer and more able to think clearly.
It's good to talk.
